itr-americas-tax-awards-2021-editable-transparent-4c-dat.jpg

The shortlist for the ITR Americas Tax Awards 2021 has been announced.

The ITR Americas Tax Awards recognise remarkable achievements and developments by international tax professionals from the North, Central and South American regions over a 12-month period.

Aside from the national awards in more than fifteen jurisdictions, there are also awards in regional, individual and in-house categories for the top performers.

Due to the continued restrictions brought upon by the COVID-19 global pandemic, we will be hosting a virtual awards ceremony on September 22.  We hope to see you all in person as soon as we can.

If you have any questions about the shortlist or research, please contact ITR’s head of awards research, James Wilson.

For the deals and cases awards, we strive to mention all the firms that took part in each deal. If your firm has been omitted, please contact ITR’s awards researcher, John Harrison.

For more information about securing a shortlist package or how you can engage with the awards, please contact ITR’s associate publisher, Tanya Gujral.

Our thoughts are with our readers and everyone affected by the pandemic.
